There is this international store about 15 minutes from me. It's primarily geared towards Hispanics, but they carry some other stuff as well.

Here's a sample of what I saw today:

Crush Orange 2L
Mirinda Orange 2L
Squirt 2L

Sidral Mundet 20oz (and 1.5L and 12oz glass, which I usually see).
Lots of Mexican Coke, Mirindia, Sprite, 7Up.

Some weird Jamaican drinks that were milk based, but had flavors like banana and peanut!

They also had the usual assortment of juices/nectars in tetra pack and cans.

Diet Inca Kola cans (I usually just see regular).

There were also a few different flavored soda lines in 2L.. I think one was from Mexico, and produced by Pepsi.

The store is set up kind of weird.. The sodas and drinks are in different places in the store, and interspersed with Hispanic and Asian grocery stuff, and American grocery stuff as well. They also have a pretty good produce section.

The store is located at the intersection of Delaware Route 2 and Delaware Route 41, maybe 15 minutes from I-95. There is also a good local burger joint nearby, and other stuff.

That's the new label? It looks like it's from the 1940's.

LOL... :D ...well...Cadbury Schweppes wanted to give Orange Crush a retro look (kinda the same they're going to do with Dr. Pepper in U.S.), and the picture looks like a picture taken from the 60's... but its definetely the new label... in fact the past label was more crazy and focused to the kids:

Have you tried some of the mexican sodas in the store? How do you find them?

Yes, it was O-key.

I have tried various Mexican sodas in 12 ounce glass bottles before. Mirindia, Coke, Sprite, 7up, Fanta Orange, Squirt, and others. I have also tried some Central/South American stuff, like Tiky Pina (from Cadbury), and some different stuff from (I believe) Guatemala, including a banana soda. I have also had Sidral Mundet a bunch of times, in plastic and glass.

I much prefer Mexican sodas over their American counterparts. And that Tiky Pina was an awesome pineapple soda!

Efectively, O-key is from a mexican Pepsi bottling group called GEUSA (http://www.geusa.com.mx) ("Grupo Embotelladoras Unidas" or United Bottlers Group), in the past was bottled before by BRET Bottling Group but GEUSA acquired that bottling company recently... this product is only available in few states of Mexico (Puebla, Oaxaca, Veracruz and Tabasco), and it's available in Tamarindo, Pineapple, Peach and Redcurrant...

You're right... Tiky is from Guatemala...

IMO...all the pineapple sodas are good, but if you say it... it has to be good.

From the sodas you've listed... Coke, Fanta, Sprite and Squirt are so good... ;)
